Nestling in the ever popular coastal village of Boscastle this delightful cottage provides a relaxing seaside escape and is a great base for exploring the glories of Cornwall.

Set less than a mile from Boscastle's unspoilt harbour and the village's tea rooms and shops, this period property is a delightful choice for those who would like the opportunity to stay in a traditional cottage with all its charms and quirks. For quiet days, the cottage's patio offers guests a lovely space to relax and enjoy al fresco dining.

This cottage is awash with period features such as exposed stone walls, fireplaces, a narrow front door, and even the original bread oven, all of which come together to provide guests with a delightfully authentic retreat. The owners have, however, ensured that the cottage has been sympathetically updated where it counts, offering a well-appointed kitchen with a full range of equipment, as well as a sleek, contemporary shower room on the first floor.

Boscastle is a quintessential Cornish harbour village, steeped in history and lying in a sheltered inlet just inland from Cornwall's Atlantic coast. A quiet retreat from some of the busy resort towns, life in Boscastle takes on a slower, more relaxed pace, allowing visitors to enjoy the stunning scenery around the village, much of which is owned and maintained by the National Trust. Take a boat ride from the pretty harbour, enjoy stunning walks along the South West Coast path, or perhaps head down the coast to King Arthur's Tintagel, just 3.5 miles south of the cottage.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

  • Maximum occupancy 4 including infants
  • 2 bedrooms: 1 double and 1 single; additional sofa bed for 1 guest in lounge
  • Shower room with shower and WC

Both the cottage and location were perfect. Lots of lovely places to visit, eat out and relax. Whilst Boscastle is set up for tourists it still retains that feeling of being local and true to its origins.

Gorgeous cottage. Loved all the little extras ..I was sold on the Molten Brown handwash! . Didnt think we were so close to the village .. about a minute walk down the hill which was great.

Masters cottage was a comfortable cottage close to Boscastle's harbour amenities and provided a good base to explore the North Cornwall coast. We took our dog and generally this was fine but it would have been even better if the back yard was enclosed.

Reviewed by Andrew 11th August 2018

Excellent location in Boscastle. The cottage was lovely and clean on arrival. Perfect size for 3. The owner was contactable and obliging with the assistance we needed. Parking was a little difficult on a very narrow street that the cottage is located on.

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
